The Alaska Forest Service celebration of IYF is themed Alaska’s Forests: More Than A Place to Visit – It’s Where We Live! The second of four beautiful posters created to bring this theme to life is released Friday, April 22 in honor of Earth Day and made available to the public—free—at your nearest Forest Service office.
This poster is themed Celebrate Your Heritage, and speaks to the role and importance of our forests among the rich and diverse cultures that exist in Alaska. A limited number of the first poster, Explore Your Backyard, is still available.
The Tongass and Chugach are holding events all year to commemorate IYF and highlight the importance of sustainable management and conservation of the world’s forests. Click the calendar tab, above, for an events listing.
